I sent them an email and they are sending me another one! Got to LOVE Birchbox customer service! :)

Sadly, the NUXE mask I got in my Birchbox broke me out something fierce. Although I do have wonky skin that likes to get spotty on occasion, nothing I can recollect has ever been the cause of a breakout besides hormones and genetics, so the fact that this broke me out is pretty amazing. I'm sad because I was super excited to try NUXE. I still want to try their lip balm that all the Youtube gurus rave about, but it's $20. :(

I'm curious about Nuxe products, too. I tried the shimmer oil and loved it, perfect for summer. Put it on my hair and skin, now I want to try some other products by them. I wanted to get the balm, but I have so many to go through already.

Thats weird. The only reason I freaked out is because (1) I wanted them before christmas, so I could give my daughter some of the things in them, but mostly because in 11 months of receiving bb and multiple other subs, that has never happened to me, and I panicked. I worried that the wrong address was somehow put on my box. Now that I know they're actually here and I should (hopefully) get them today, I'm calm haha.

Mine went to Des Moines once. It said it was at the post office in Omaha, NE. Then later the same thing for Des Moines. I live in Council Bluffs, IA. Des Moines has a similar ZIP code.

It's pretty and musky. Pachuli and rose. It lasts for a long time. It's kind of sexy! I really like it! I'm totally getting the sample pack to see if there's one I love more. My entire family kept sniffing me all day telling me they liked it!

post #2290 of 2321
Thank you! Now I want to try it even more! Maybe I will get lucky next month. Sounds wonderful!

And if you do not like Citizen Queen when you get the sample pack, please think of me and my trade list, LOL! biggrin.gif
post #2291 of 2321
p.s. With your sense of humor, you will find that ordering the sample pack is totally worth it if only for the translated-to-English scent descriptions that accompany each vial!

Birchbox has some renewal codes:

 

 

join10monthly = 20 ($2) points with renewed sub
join110annual = 220 ($22) with yearly sub
 
I'm still made at Birchbox for fucking up my review this month, so  I'm debating it. On the other hand, I still think BB is a good deal so I'll probably cave. Sigh

Anyone know if it is possible to renew even though my annual sub doesn't expire until april?

So if I upgrade to a yearly subscription, do I get a welcome box or just continue as is? Dumb question, I know lol

I think you get a regular box. Welcome boxes are usually for 'gift subscriptions". But if it's really important to you, I would email CS to be 100% sure.

post #2299 of 2321

I've had Birchbox for a while now (September 2011), so I don't know if they've changed it at all, but my first box was a regular box. I did just sign up for a gift subscription, which means I got two boxes in December and both were awesome. I feel so spoiled this month! I'm sure I'll get the short end of the stick next month though, lol.

I just checked my account...I started BB in April 2011 on a monthly basis and upgraded to an annual account in March 2012...I received a regular box in April 2012...not a welcome box as if I was just starting...hope this helps :)

post #2301 of 2321
Thanks y'all! Hopefully I won't be kicking myself for upgrading wink.gif
post #2302 of 2321

Did Birchbox ever release any info about the "Deluxe subscription" that was listed in the holiday gift guide???

so just an update on Box 3, the one with the Thymes Body lotion as a sample and a lifestyle extra. I talked to one of the nice BB customer service girls and she told me that the samples were put together by request of the Brand, to see which one sold better. I guess my question is, why wouldn't they do one of those double lifestyle things like they do with other boxes? Oh well, that's the story, just thought I'd share.

post #2305 of 2321

I got a box with the Thymes lotion...one bottle and one packet...if they really wanted to compare they would have put the same sizes (preferably bottles) instead of comparing apples to oranges.

post #2306 of 2321

If they truly wanted a comparison they should have atleast let us do feedback on both..instead of screwing us out of feedback points!

Hi there!  I was wondering why there were 2 of the same brand in one box like that.  Seems lame to me.  Totally felt like Box 3 was a "punishment" box, did you?  Maybe it's because I haven't been completing product surveys as often as I should.  Whoops!

Yes. That. ^ I am ticked off about not getting to reviee the little foil packet. I mean, we are forced by Birchbox to review foil packets quite frequently, but we got 4 legit samples and then got screwed out of 10 points, basically. Just my opinion. I know it might be a little harsh, but I am quite ticked off about it. I got box 3 as well.

I didn't get this box, but I completely agree with you ladies.  Especially because Birchbox said that the company that makes the lotion asked to have the two scents put together so that they could see which one sold better!  Wouldn't it have been better for the company if you could review both scents? That way they'd have accurate feedback on both the products they're wanting you to try, not just one.  Especially as it caused the majority of those who received the lotions to say they NEVER want to buy anything from this company again!

 

I hope BB comes to its senses and allows you all to review it.

I did tell the CS girl something similar to this, that it would have made more sense to be able to review both or something. She basically said she'd make a note and let marketing know that I didn't like the way it was set up and that I'd never get "the same sample twice" again. I liked the lotion, I just think BB could have thrown me another extra (fortune cookie?) or something to make the box worth it. I think it was a bad call on several accounts.
